One room away from success

by Gulyasarni66 - Compo Entry

One room away from success is my attempt at Ludum Dare #37.
It is a puzzle game with a misterious atmosphere.

Reminds me Undertale...

Yeah it does remind me of undertale, the art of the walls especially, I like the background tune playing. The puzzles are pretty interesting and it's satisfying when you get them right. over all it's a lot better than the game I made(also a puzzle) Btw I am stuck on si + too puzzle, what number do I type in?? I wanna finish the game.

Thank you for the feedback! I am actually very happy that people actually find my puzzles interesting :D
The solution to the si+too puzzle is 751, because SI=51, TOO=700. You just have to look at the letters as if they were numbers! :)

Okay thanks I finished the game now.

I liked the music a lot! The transitions between rooms were nice and I really enjoyed the mood overall!

That was fun. The puzzles were not, "How was I supposed to do that?" puzzles.

The graphics also reminded me Undertale. I liked the puzzle, it took me a while to realize how to solve it. Keep up the good work!

Nice adventure puzzler. Probably wouldn't have guessed the SI+TOO one without you explaining it in the comment, but apart from that the difficulty was just about right. Graphics are simple but it looks quite good imo and the the music + SFX are good too. At some points running would've been useful, but the walking speed wasn't too bad. Some of the inputs in the number puzzles could've been a bit farther away from each other to prevent missclicks.

Great, polished, unique puzzle with ideal length and perfect difficulty. At first I couldn't decrypt the caesar code, because I thought the last letter was 0 instead of Q.

simple escape room but a good mood.
Charactere is a bit strange but bricks are cool.
Maybe the collision are too large (it takes me some tries to put the numbers I want with buttons...)

Fun little puzzle game, although I'm ashamed to admit I got stuck at room 3.
Maybe a little rough around the edges in terms of presentation, but the puzzle part is definitely solid and that's quite important in a puzzle game, or so I heard. ;)

Not sure if Undertale inspired the art or not, but I like it. Feels very lonely in the game (mood-wise). Puzzles are nice, and the hints helped. The music added well to the mood. Good job.

@Andrew Deem @bigbuggames

Yes, it was inspired from Undertale, since i suck at drawing and i didn't develop an unique style yet. :D

The solution is 751, since SI looks like 51 and TOO looks like 700. I know that puzzle is a bit difficult, but i couldn't think of a proper hint :/
Anyways, thank you for the feedback! It means a lot to me!

Interesting puzzle game!

The "hit-box" on the top row of answer buttons was a bit too large, I had to redo entering the answer a couple of times, because I kept accidentially activating the top row buttons.

The puzzles were both interesting and varied - it has been a while since I last solved a Caesarean cipher :) I liked the art as well, and the music worked well to enhance the mood.

Nice work! :)

Lots' of rooms! It was fun though and a game that makes people think is great.

Nice game, really satisfying to solve all the puzzles!

Good complete game with tones of Undertale indeed. The 1st puzzle was the best one really, should have put that one last. Odd atmosphere, well done! Another puzzle lover :)

So polished, So pretty.

Not bad! The puzzles were okay, although SI+TOO was a bit too far-fetched, in my opinion. I wish there were more puzzles.

The music is weird and sort of fits the game, so that's good. I wouldn't say this game fits the theme very well, though.

Good job overall! Always fun to play more 'lateral thinking' games.
